Spotlight on BBC One’s miniseries SS-GB + Interview with actor Maximilian Dirr

This past Sunday, BBC One finally aired one of my most anticipated series (well it's a 5-part miniseries) starring my fave Yorkshireman Sam Riley. I've mentioned the project several times, including here and here.

FlixChatter Review: Das Finstere Tal (The Dark Valley, 2014)

I have to admit I probably wouldn't have stumbled upon this Austrian Western if it weren't for my affinity for English actor Sam Riley. And for that I'm grateful to him, and he's an unlikely-but-perfect choice in the role of a German-speaking, Texas cowboy protagonist.
